After years of hard work J. Marcus Ross gave up a successful career as a Human Resources Manager for the GAP to pursue a freelance writing career. With the support of his wife, family, and friends Marcus set out to finish his first in a series of novels, and expand his freelance writing career. Thousands throughout the Internet have viewed his short stories discovering the mysterious worlds, intriguing characters, and engaging stories, which inhabit J. Marcus Rossí universe.

"What I love about writing the most is that I get to meet so many amazing and interesting people. Iíve been lucky enough to be able to do what I love and share that with others."

As a newspaper writer early on in his career Marcus was fortunate enough to have been exposed to veteran journalists who helped mold his writing and research abilities for future freelance writing assignments. His creative writing is accentuated by having grown up in a non-conventional life, as a child, his parents owned a carnival that traveled throughout much of the United States.

"That world is unlike anything youíve ever read about. No book or movie has ever done it justice, ever captured what that life is like. It was an amazing experience."

When not sitting behind his computer Marcus can be found enjoying all the Pacific Northwest has to offer, and spending time with the love of his life, his wife, Andrea. They are anxiously awaiting the arrival of a new addition to their family as Andrea is expecting; so much of Marcusí time is spent in preparing to become a father.

"Becoming a father will probably . . . I donít know what to say, it is both so scary and exciting to think that I will be a father to this little bundle of life . . . I expect it will change everything."

Interests: Writing provides me the greatest of opportunities to meet new people and experience new places. To be able to go out into the world everyday and learn about new things excites me to no end. The world is my interest and all the people in it my hobby.
